CPA TO BRIEF NEW
COUNCILLORS



 









 At Governor Capes’ invitation and financed by
the Governor’s Delegated Fund, a Delegation
from the UK Branch of the
Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) will arrive on-Island on Tuesday
30 July. The Delegation, working with senior SHG officials, will hold a series
of seminars for newly elected Councillors, as a major part of their induction
process.



 



The seven-day
induction programme has been designed to strengthen and promote good governance
in St Helena.



Members of the Delegation will
brief Councillors on their role as Councillors, the leadership required from
them, strategic policy making and the function of Committees, dealing with
conflicting pressures, working with officials, the importance of keeping the
community informed, effective communication, scrutiny and the accountability of
Councillors, and the ethical behaviour and standards that are expected from
Elected Members.



Governor Capes said:



 



'I am grateful to the CPA
for responding so positively to my request for a small team to visit St Helena
at this important moment, to help prepare our recently elected Councillors to
carry out their new responsibilities.



‘I recognise that it
represents a significant commitment from the visiting team in terms of time
away from their many duties in the UK and I much appreciate their willingness
to assist. Although it is quite costly to bring the team here for a week, I
believe it makes good use of the Delegated Funds provided to me by the Foreign
and Commonwealth Office. Our Councillors have a heavy agenda ahead and I want
to give them the best possible start.'



Members of the CPA Delegation are:



 



Lord Shutt of Greetland OBE FCA (a
former Deputy Chief Whip in the House of Lords)



Barry Paint (an Elected Member -
or ‘Deputy’ - on the Island of Guernsey)



Tim Crookall (a Member of the
House of Keys on the Isle of Man)



Joyce Watson (Welsh Assembly
Member for Mid and West Wales since 2007), and



John Grimes (former Head of
Governance at the National Assembly for Wales)
